Back up light fuse.

My truck keeps blowing the reverse light fuse. I've checked all the wiring, and it's all good. I even disconnected my extra back-up lights, and it still blew the fuse. Never has done this before. The fuse is #27, and the owners manuel says that it also is used for the Electric shift,DRL's,Transmission control switch, and the vacuum hub lock. How do i check these other things mentioned? It blows the fuse as soon as the truck is put into reverse. HELP!

Is it only when you put it into reverse? Or just replace the fuse and it blows?

Tried new bulbs?

I got to thinking while at work. I disconnected the lights all together, and it still blew the fuse. Isnt there a sensor/switch or something like that on the transmission?
